Blog Hop/Creative Showcase, Christmas, Holiday Catalogue, Stampin' Up!

AWH Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop!

Dear Crafters,art-with-heart-image

Today some of the Art with Heart Stampin’ Up! team girls are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new Holiday Catalogue available now until 3rd January 2017. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!

You have come to my blog from the lovely, Rebecca Jacovou.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my projects today I am using the Cookie Cutter Bundle (Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch). By purchasing these items together you save an extra 10%.

Who doesn’t think of Rudolf when you think of Christmas? Well, Santa has to get here somehow and guess who is the leader of the gang?!!!! So today I begin with a card with Rudolf being the focus!

Having a stamp and coordinating punch, makes cards so easy to create. By stamping the background with multiple of the same image, you don’t necessarily need designer paper to get started. Stamp the image again onto the same colour card and punch it out and centre it to the card on dimensionals.

I added some of the new copper metallic thread behind for a little bling and a shiny red nose with some Dazzling Details and a bright red sentiment in the bottom corner.

Next is a similar card, but stepped up with an embossed background with copper embossing powder.

The Real Red card was die cut with the Layering Squares framelits and I used the copper metallic thread wrapped around it multiple times for an effective pattern.

Also in this bundle, is a teddy bear (cute hey?!) and the sentiment Have yourself a beary merry Christmas!

This time I have used some Designer Series Paper, Pinecones and Presents and I selected the piece with the little bows to coordinate with the bow on my teddy bear.

The Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon is tied in a knot with some gold sequin trim.

And now for some cute little Santa earrings, made with this bundle and using some Shrink Plastic! How cool that you can use your stampin’ stuff to create these gorgeous accessories!!!


and some cute little Eskimo’s too!

It’s not the typical or traditional Christmas card, but one for the kiddies!
